Worked Phil, TT8PK on 20cw a few minutes ago.  Only had Chad (TT8HA from 2007) on phone until today.  Not rare, but not really common either. Cool  73, Gene AF3Y

Gene,
Congrats... I need it!

I am not hearing anyone give him a report.  All it appears is he gives the stations call two times, thanks him then calls QRZ... have yet to hear anyone send back a signal report to him.  Granted, it would be the typical 599, but it's like he's not even waiting for the other station to respond back to him.

A rather distinctive style, for sure. He is VERY quick to pick his next contact, but tailending did not seem to work. I dont think I have heard another op quite like that. hi
As I was giving him his signal report, he was already calling CQ, as you say, but I would have to assume its a good contact. I think someone mentioned his "different" method of working DX. Its O Grin K with me. hi 73, Gene AF3Y  BTW, he is still on 14037 right now, listening up 2 or so......

I had a decent signal on him tonight. But the QRM was crazy.  Between the lids and my 6 month old that I was trying to rock asleep I wasn't able to get him.  Oh well better luck tomorrow night.

Unfortunately, while it is easy to obtain Phil's QSL, it is unlikely that you will be able to use it for DXCC credit. It was mentioned in a thread a few months ago on this forum.

I don't like his way of operating. Could be a robot making the QSO's for what I know. Listen to the QSO's; all in the same way - same speed - no error keying - and of course no reports from anyone. This can not be a valid way of operating?

Works almost the same as the "skimmers" - picking up callsign, frequency, logging time etc......

And - If you go to DX summit (or any dx cluster) and do a search you will find a lot of "self spotting" done by F4EGS (his french callsign).

I've worked him, but have a bad feeling about the way it's done.....

Congratulations, a fairly rare catch, that's one that's missing from my Log. so I am envious Smiley  Considering that the bands are terrible right now makes it all that more amazing.

Guys...

Some somewhat disconcerting news regarding TT8PK QSO's and DXCC credit...

I just worked Phil this morning on 20M CW and decided to call the ARRL DXCC Desk for clarification on the validity
on my contact for DXCC credit.

I was told that based on the date on my contact (20-6-2012) the contact was invalid because of missing documentation.

It seems that the validity of contacts is based on the year worked and if the appropriate "documentation" is in-hand at the ARRL.

Bummer...I'm going to request a card from Phil anyway in hopes that this gets sorted out in the future...

Work first, worry later...right Undecided
